    A Shift2Rail project within Innovation Programme 2:
    "Advanced Traffic Management and Control Systems"
  • newslide2014_1
    The project investigates the applicability of satellite positioning technologies (GNSS) to railway signalling systems (ERTMS)
  • newslide2014_1
    Performance and properties of GNSS application are analysed both in nominal and fault conditions. The possibility to achieve zero on-site testing will be an additional result.
  • newslide2014_1
    The achieved results will be demonstrated on two railway lines in Spain and Italy. The project outcomes will contribute to improve the European signalling system.

About GATE4RAIL

GNSS Automated Virtualized Test Environment for Rail (GATE4Rail) deals with tasks TD2.4 and TD2.6 of the Shift2Rail Multi Annual Action Plan. Particularly, its main goals are: i) achieving a realistic characterization of the environment in terms of railway and GNSS infrastrustructures able to evaluate the performances and properties of some fail-safe train positioning components in nominal and fault conditions; ii) defining a common test process framework for zero on-site testing instead of testing on-site saving effort and time.
